I think this picture must have been my first experience with snow. It was taken in the side yard of the old Manchaca Baptist Church about 1956-57. I was somewhere between 2 and 3 years old when Daddy and I posed in the snow. I don't believe this old church building is still standing. At the time we lived in Manchaca, it was several miles from Austin and was a small rural community. Manchaca has since been swallowed up by Austin and the Baptist Church has a grown into a large congregation.
I had no way of knowing that the strange, cold, fluffy white stuff would be something I would experience only a few times in my life.
